Back by popular demand, Santa’s Holiday Magic Trail will be happening Dec. 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Similar to last year, Santa will be driving a route throughout Burlington neighbourhoods on an antique firetruck to wave at all the children who line the streets.
New this year a small procession of floats followed by Santa will be visiting Burlington neighbourhoods to spread holiday cheer to residents.
If bad weather occurs on those dates, Dec. 12 will be used for a weather make-up day.
Schedule and Routes
Four unique routes have been developed to ensure Santa visits all the Burlington community. Two routes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, will be covered per day.
